About this book


Beginning with a brief history of the Internet, this book delves into a review of current research, active learning strategies, Web courseware, metacognition, strategies for Web discussions, promoting student self-regulation, building interactive Web pages, basic HTML coding, managing Web sites, using databases, automated testing, and security and legal issues.
Experience shows that Web teaching may be used in an extremely wide range of subject areas. Modern course management software has demystified the use of the Web for teaching, allowing instructors to focus on instructional design and improving student experiences instead of only the technical skills of building Web sites. Web-Teaching helps readers pick and choose what aspects of the Web to employ to achieve the greatest student learning gains.
